Spelt is an ancient species of wheat (often called hulled wheat) that dates all the way back to the Bronze Age in Europe. It has survived in Central Europe and Northern Spain and has recently been revived in the health food world because of the broad spectrum of nutrients it offers.
Nutrients contained in spelt include manganese, fiber, vitamin b3, and phosphorus. Something to keep in mind: Spelt does contain a moderate amount of gluten. The grains of spelt are fairly large and crunchy and often described as “spelt berries” because of their large size and shape.
